I create handmade,robust and precisely constructed traditional willow baskets. My designs are influenced by the shapes and styles that have been used for hundreds of years.
Each basket is unique and woven from naturally coloured Irish willow to create aesthetically beautiful functional items.
Based in Bangor, County Down, Bob Johnston has been creating traditional and contemporary willow baskets, sculptures and living structures since 2000.
Initially trained as a textile weaver, Bob has since studied with master basket makers in Armagh, Galway and Villaines les Rochers, France.
His award winning work can be found in the collections of museums, galleries and in the film industry.
